Uniform Regulations & Exchange Program

Our school uniform policy exists to promote pride in appearance and an atmosphere conducive to learning. ANS students wear the school uniform with pride in themselves and pride in the Archbishop Neale School Community. All students are required to have a winter uniform, summer uniform and gym uniform. Summer uniforms are worn from August through October and from a designated date in April through June. Winter uniforms are required from November until the designated date in April or may be worn all year.

Uniform shorts, skirts/skorts, pants, and sweaters may be purchased through Flynn & O’Hara, Land’s End, The Carousel, or the Uniform Exchange at ANS. Gym shirts, gym shorts, sweatshirts and sweatpants must be purchased through the school.

Uniform Exchange Program

The purpose of the uniform exchange program is to recycle gently used uniforms within our school.

Here is a brief overview of how the program works:

  • All gently used uniforms are turned into the school and are picked up by the used uniform coordinator.
  • The used uniform coordinator will inspect the pieces and put them into the inventory.
  • The coordinator will fill all requests and send the pieces into the school for pickup.
  • Payment should be sent to the school. You can pay by cash or check (check made out to ANS). If you are doing the one for one exchange, then please send in the article of clothing.

All gently used uniforms that are in good, clean condition and meet the school’s dress code guidelines will be accepted. Clothing that contains rips, tears, stains or is not within the school’s dress code guidelines will not be accepted.

This is a one-for-one exchange so you must exchange the same item of clothing that you are getting from the program. You can also purchase items from the exchange.

To request a piece of clothing from the exchange, please contact the school.
